The Tokorangi Pa Track takes you through the tranquil Redwoods before a steady climb eastward to 500 metres above sea level.

This is a very beautiful walk with views of Mt Ngongotaha, Rotorua City, the lake, airport and countryside.

The trip through Douglas fir, European Larch, Walnut and various Eucalypts leads to the site of an ancient Maori pa
(fortified village). This was once a small Maori village although nothing remains today. The track then continues down to the valley floor along ‘The Wash’. Watch for bikes on the Water Reservoir and Lynmore Link sections as these are dual-use tracks. ‘Cardiac Steps’ brings you back up past the wastewater treatment ponds to return via Katore and Nursery Roads.
